I'd love to have something like this too. I sometimes use the Telescope Touch Android app to look at INDI settings, but that's not a perfect fit either. I most often use the INDI control panel behind CCDCiel... but it can sometimes be a bit "crashy."

That's GREAT! I'm glad my little script is useful.

If it works connected directly, then it's not my script... sounds like a compatibility issue with your IR shutter cable. I can't help... but I think it's cool you're messing with it. :)

Out of curiosity, What are you trying to solve using the IR remote if you can already control the shutter with a cable? If your answer is "fun thing to try" I'd totally understand.

My script was written on an Astroberry. I do not know what is included on Stellarmate. Sorry.

The latest Astroberry included a slightly broken indi_setprop command. The workaround is to specify the INDI server host. To test if this is your issue, bypass the script and just use the following command line tools.  (note the -h 127.0.0.1 part)

indi_setprop -h 127.0.0.1 "EQMod Mount.SNAPPORT1.SNAPPORT1_ON=On"
indi_setprop -h 127.0.0.1 "EQMod Mount.SNAPPORT1.SNAPPORT1_OFF=On"

If that works, you can set a temporary alias in the script or just hardcode the host on all indi_setprop and indi_getprop commands.

Something like this at the top of any bash scripts that use these commands will work around the issue for now.
# Temporary aliases to work around localhost issue.
shopt -s expand_aliases
alias indi_getprop="indi_getprop -h 127.0.0.1"
alias indi_setprop="indi_setprop -h 127.0.0.1"
alias indi_eval="indi_eval -h 127.0.0.1"
